Pio Cesare 2016 Barbaresco


"Pio Cesare’s 2016 Barbaresco is, quite simply, everything Barbaresco should be. Medium in body and translucent, with a firm backbone of youthful Nebbiolo tannin, the 2016 is captivating from the very first taste. Rose petal, lavender, mint, blood orange and red berry fruit open effortlessly. This is textbook Barbaresco. I loved it." Antonio Galloni 95 Points

"The Pio Cesare 2016 Barbaresco offers a subtle approach to Nebbiolo with a silky and graceful presence. The bouquet shows a nice and fanciful embroidery of wild berries, blue flowers and white licorice. Yes, these are the standard Nebbiolo traits, and this classic wine strives to deliver nothing more and nothing less than varietal purity. Any signs of the oak have been neatly folded into the delicate fiber of this Barbaresco. The wine represents a blend of fruit from Cascina Il Bricco, San Stefanetto, Bongiovanni and Rocche di Massalupo. Some 30,000 bottles were made." Robert Parker 93 Points

"Fragrant with floral, steeped cherry and licorice aromas, this red is elegant and supple. The flavors are a touch darker, revealing black cherry, black currant, earth and tobacco. It firms up on the long finish, ending with the essence of sweet fruit. Best from 2023 through 2040. 1,600 cases made, 725 cases imported" Wine Spectator 92 Points
